This week we have been busy doing our assessments in all curriculum areas.The children have tackled the questions enthusiastically and worked to the best of their ability.We are very proud of them all! Well done to Isla who has worked particularly hard this week and is our Friday certificate winner.

During our circle time we have been trying to memorise the poem 'If you should ever meet a whale.' If you should wish to help your child to remember the words, please google the lyrics for the title of the poem and then select the Daniel Heywood blog spot where the poem can be found.

In R.E we have been looking at ways of caring for the planet both at home and at school.The powerpoint showed the children ways to recycle objects and what they would be used for and discussed ways of saving water and electricity.We discussed how we use monitors at school to turn off lights and computers and took suggestions of what else we could do.

Science continues to be based on animals and we are currently looking at what animals eat and how we can classify them into carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.The children have been working on a venn diagram with a partner to group animals according to their diet.

We are looking forward to our open day next Wednesday and hope to see as many of you as possible.Mrs Gallon has planned lots of lovely activities for the children and I will be making chocolate Easter nests so please come along and join in!

When a drone visited Stakesby!

Paul from YorkshireDroneServices.com recently visited Stakesby with his drone to take some images of the children spelling out the word 'GOOD' in celebration of our recent Ofsted success. Year 5 used problem solving techniques in a maths lesson to work out the area that the children had to stand in and how the children and letters would be arranged. A huge 'Thank You' to Paul for his services and patience and keep an eye out in the Whitby Gazette for the images!
